    Had more time to play with this and it is fantastic..

    You can comment and annotate the images, add them to your profile and download.. you can also start your own group and add pictures. I started one called 'Lochwinnoch Village' , the place I grew up.

    I also found the factory where I served my time as an apprentice.. India Tyres Inchinnan ..

    what a great resource ..

    Registered. We have had a lot of re-development around here and in Liverpool its interesting to see what we've lost and what we've gained.
    Especially the old landing stage in Liverpool when the transatlantic ships used to come in (before the days of air travel) and now it looks like we are getting back.
    going to look at Speke airport (now John Lennon)
